Christmas in Indonesia
by AuthorName, AuthorTitle, AuthorMinistry
Indonesia has the largest Muslim population of any nation (and the 4th largest population in the world with 258 million people, after China, India and United States). I had the privilege of speaking at the Christmas celebration at Gelora Bung Kamo stadium, the largest in Jakarta. One headline in a local paper read, "Hundreds of Thousands filled Stadium." I spoke on Jesus as the light of the world. As you can see in the photo from the secular newspaper, those in the stadium then lit candles in His honor.
I cried, laughed, danced and stood in awe to see 200,000 native Indonesians praising Jesus, taking communion, giving testimony of healing miracles, celebrating the birth of Messiah and hearing the word of God. Local organizers asked me not to print their names. (The immediate danger is not their being Christian but their connection with Jews from Israel.) Pray for a mighty revival throughout Indonesia.
